How many DECIMAL FRACTIONS, Adapted to the Currency of the United States. We now come to treat of Decimals in connexion with the currency of this country, by which it is believed that calculations generally, at least where money is concerned, will be much facilitated, and bring to view a better and easier method of computation than has heretofore been in general use. That fractions must of necessity occur in almost every transaction, none will presume to deny, and all will admit that no part of the science of Arithmetic is more difficult of comprehension to the juvenile mind than fractions, especially those termed vulgar; but in this treatise, this part of Arithmetic is introduced in a pleasing and agreeable manner, particularly calculated to attract the attention : of youth, and overcome every obstacle and difficulty; and the author entertains the belief that he has in part succeeded. DECIMAL is derived from the Latin word decem (signifying ten, because they increase and decrease in a tenfold proportion, like whole numbers), and is a part of a whole number, or unit, which is distinguished by a period, decimal point, or separatrix, placed at the left of the figure or figures, thus: .5=jo, or one half; .25=10=twenty-five hundredths=one quarter ; 6.8, six and eight tenths ; .15=105=fifteen hundredths; .144= 140, one hundred and forty-four thousandths, &c.; the number above ihe line, 144, is called the numerator, and the number below the line, 1000, is called the denominator, and must consist of one place more than the numerator, and shows the number of parts into which a unit or anything is divided, thus, if you own 25 parts in 100 parts, you own one fourth, because 25 X4=100== the numerator and denominator being alike, are equal to 1 The word fraction implies broken parts of a unit or whole number 25 10 ; ; |
